IT'S THE PENULTIMATE EPISODE! Andrea and Amanda chat about Buffy cool new weapon, Angel's reappearance in Sunnydale, and all the nice little moments that happen in this, the second-to-last episode of Buffy.
We're so close to the end folks! Which makes it all the nicer to get a beautiful character episode like this so close to the end! Amanda and Andrea talk about how much they love Spuffy in this ep, and talk through all the lovely little extra touches that are in this episode.
We're coming down to final few episodes folks, so it seems about time for Andrea and Amanda to have some serious differences of opinion, right?
In our discussion of Empty Places, Andrea defends Buffy to the end (but doesn't blame Faith!) and Amanda takes a look at the situation from the Potentials shoes.
Don't forget to send your favourite tangents, bits, episodes, Canadianisms, whatever you like to us at firstname.lastname@example.org while we get ready to wrap up Buffy!
Faith and Caleb have arrived in Sunnydale at last, and you know what that means? THE END IS NIGH!
We chat about the creepiness of Caleb, Faith's re-integration into the Scoobies and our poor poor Xander.
Plus we have an extra long 'Five Minutes with Angel' as we talk about 4x16-4x18.
Time for another Angel Package: The Faith episodes!
Andrea and Amanda welcome back Angel super-fan, Julia, to chat about the end of the beast, Angelus, Wes, and Faith.
We chat about how Wes and Faith are really the only good things about these episodes, the frustrating writing, and how we do NOT care for what's being done to Cordelia's character.
Come on down and listen to Amanda, Andrea and guest Lauren have a chat about "Lies My Parents Told Me!"
We talk about the various parent/child relationships in the episode, as well have a tangent (or four) along the way.
Oh! Hello there gentle listeners! Are you ready to listen to your faithful hosts Amanda and Andrea talk about 'Storyteller' and all the ways they enjoy Andrew, with their guest Alicen?
Then look no further! We talk about recording for posterity, speechifying, and our fondness for the 'guestage'. Also, if you don't normally listen all the way to the end, we'd recommend doing it this time around.
So Miss Piggy and Robin Hood head into a desert... no wait, that's not how it goes! This is no happy puppet show and Kermit's definitely not hanging out in the desert with the creepy shadow men. Andrea and Amanda have opinions on these guys and are loving Buffy's attack on the patriarchy! Even if this was a muppet show, Buffy would still find a way to get in one of her inspiring speeches... we have thoughts on those as well.
Everyone's going on dates and it's a horrible idea, according to Giles. He's half right.
We chat about the Robin Wood revelation, Xander's continuing bad luck with the ladies, and how much we adore Andrew. (Yup, Amanda's finally on board)
Time for us to chat about some changes that Willow's going through, about the Scoobies finally sharing Amanda's concerns about Giles and Spike's horrendous headaches.
It's the beginning of the year, and here on Tiny Fences that means it's time for us to take a look back at the year that was! That's right, it's time for the third annual Year in Review!!
It's the final episode of 2017!! Are you ready for tangenty goodness while we chat about 'Potential'?
As we say in the episode we wish one and all a wonderful holiday season no matter what holiday you happen to celebrate!
It's "Showtime" for Buffy in the fight against the First. After an infiltration by the First into the house, Buffy has to show the doubting Potentials what she's capable of.
Over on 'Five Minutes with Angel' things continue to just be generally terrible.
No more 'the demon' folks! We finally know (well, Amanda does) that the First Evil is back in Sunnydale to cause all kinds of trouble.
The ladies chat about Spike, the problem with Willow being so powerful, and what the heck happened to the Watcher's Council.
Amanda and Andrea are talking about the Spike-centric "Sleeper" today.
Andrea's mum gets some serious shout-outs and the ladies take a brief tour to tangent land in the form of the Grey Cup and the CFL.
Here's a link to the opening and ending of the seminal Canadian children's classic, "The Friendly Giant"
Time for Amanda and Andrea to have a conversation about 'Conversations with Dead People'!
It's one of Andrea's favourite episodes, and we essentially spend the podcast heaping praise on the writers, actors, director and editors.
And then we talk about Angel....which is another story entirely
ALSO! SPOILER WARNING! Spoilers for both seasons of Stranger Things from around 24:03-25:36 and for Firefly starting when Andrea mentions Jonathan Woodward for about 30-45 seconds.
What the heck is going on with Anya?! That's what Amanda would like to know! She has a lot of questions about Anya's past that just don't have answers.
We get an episode that feels like a bit of a throwback to 'old school' Buffy', trying to solve a high school mystery.
Amanda has a sad realization and Andrea just really loves how excited Buffy is about her new job.
We're excited that Willow's back and that there's an actually creepy MotW for a change!
Amanda and Andrea get back to the swing of things, chatting about some of 701 while they chat about 702. While it's pretty lousy plot-wise, it's an episode rich in character development.
The girls compare Nancy to your friend who's never seen Buffy, chat a lot about Spike, and Amanda wonders if Principal Wood is sinister due to his shockingly white teeth...
Amanda and Andrea welcome special guest Kevin T. Porter of Gilmore Guys fame to chat Buffy in general and 701 in specific.
In our most tangenty episode in a while we talk about the series, podcasting and film music.
NB: We have a small amount of explicit language in this episode
We can hardly believe we're already at the end of season six! Amanda and Andrea welcome back Lauren to chat about 'Grave'.
Giles is back, Buffy's out of the battle and it's time for the humans to step up and save the day.
